Alternative Dispute Resolution for businesses

In our experience, the majority of business disputes can be resolved outside of a court by using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). This is also sometimes referred to as non-confrontational dispute resolution as the goal is for the parties in the dispute to work together to find a solution while keeping conflict to a minimum.


There are various options we can use to find a solution to commercial disputes without the need for court action. These include:


  • Negotiation – Many disputes can be resolved quickly by our skilled negotiators working with both parties to agree a positive outcome.
  • Mediation – We can offer a trained, neutral mediator to guide you and the other party in the dispute towards agreeing a mutually acceptable solution in a non-confrontational way.


There are various advantages to using alternative dispute resolution, including:

  • It is usually faster than court action as you do not need to wait for a court date
  • It is usually less expensive than court action
  • You keep control of the process – the final decision is not left to a judge
  • It is generally less stressful as conflict is minimised and you do not need to appear in court
  • It can help maintain or repair your relationship with the person you are in dispute with, which can be vital if you need to keep doing business together
  • It allows you to keep the matter private, unlike with court action where any hearing will be in public
